It occurred to me that there's no way I'll finish another book, buy more music, or watch another movie or entire TV series before the end of the day, so it's time to post these lists. I've been diligent at tracking the books, but as far as music and movies go, I probably forgot a few. Is it sad that 25 books in one year is more books than I've completed in the past few years combined? I was hoping to get to 30, but no such luck. I'm in the middle of several books right now, so I included them at the bottom. You'll note that about half of these books are non-fiction and are almost all books I borrowed from Frank. I may not have walked away from that relationship with a boyfriend, but I did walk away with a love for non-fiction.

25 books is good! I only made it to 15. My aunt said she was going for a hundred - but "only" made it to 90. Must be nice to sit at home all day and have nothing better to do than read! :P

I noticed that you're reading The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design; the title is intriguing and makes me really REALLY want to recommend one I just finished two days ago, I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist ( by Norman L. Geisler and Frank Turek. It is SO awesome.

I will definitely have to check out your book recommendation. It looks to be about the exact opposite about the evolution book I'm reading right now because the author, Richard Dawkins, is an athiest. But it's one of those things where I have all these questions about evolution, so I decided I'd read this book, see what it has to say, and start forming my own opinions about some things.

Nice book count!

I may not have walked away from that relationship with a boyfriend, but I did walk away with a love for non-fiction.

Hee! This makes me smile, both because it's funny and because it's awesome.
